Checking the Accuracy of Siitperf
Siitperf is the world’s first free software RFC 8219 compliant SIIT (Stateless IP/ICMP Translation, also called as Stateless NAT64) tester, which implements throughput, frame loss rate, latency and packet delay variation tests. In this paper, we show that the reliability of its results mainly depends on the accuracy of the timing of its frame sender algorithm. We also investigate the effect of Ethernet flow control on the measurement results. Siitperf is calibrated by the comparison of its results with that of a commercial network performance tester, when both of them are used for determining the throughput of the IPv4 routing of the Linux kernel.
